A man has been charged over a collision which saw a car flip on its roof and injure two pedestrians, including a five-year-old boy.
Matthew Darby, aged 33, from Park Road West, Wolverhampton, was charged with drink driving following the collision near to the A34 Bridgetown Island in Cannock on 23 December.
He has been granted unconditional police bail ahead of an appearance at Cannock Magistrates Court due on 7 January 2022.
A 33-year-old woman, a pedestrian injured in the collision, remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital.
A five-year-old boy, who was also a pedestrian at the time of the crash, remains in hospital undergoing tests.
The driver and passenger – a man and a woman, both in their 50s – of a blue Toyota Hilux, were unhurt and managed to free themselves from the vehicle prior to the arrival of the emergency services.
